“Tips to save cash when in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I booked online for family of four and save £25.
The park itself is excellent, plenty of rides etc.
Nickelodeon land is not as big as it looks on the map. Also the characters don't walk around they come out at times and big queues appear.
Don't waste cash on eat all you can tickets, they run out of food very quickly.
When you enter the park the hand you leaflets etc that look like junk. Infact there are money off coupons inside so use them. I never realised till I left the park. There is a McDonald's and pizza hug outside, 1 minute walk and you can leave the park at any time and return so do that. It's cheaper than eating inside.
If you can afford it buy a fast pass as you will get more done.
I took a bag with food in and had it in the bottom of a bag. They asked what's in the bag I said change of clothes!
Go on the big water ride at the end as you WILL get soaked through.
Don't buy in nickelodeon land as 2 doors down outside you get stuff at half the cost.
All bank machines in the park and whole promenade charge to with draw money. Go one street back for free cash machines.
Also all can knock down games are rigged as all done using magnets. Guy on stall actually showed me!
The park itself is a must! Enjoy!

“Excellent Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Me and three friends spent from 10am until 7pm here yesterday and it was brilliant! It accommodates for every type of theme park goer with smaller family rides through to the extreme coasters. The food is very well priced considering its a theme park with lots of good value food deals around the park. In addition to this there is loads of toilets and through out the day I did not have to queue once to use them which was great! I would definitely recommend Valhalla to everyone....the best ride I have every been on!

“Fun theme park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

It looks small from the outside but is massive on the inside. The queue to get in was really long but we used Tesco vouchers so weren't complaining! We were shocked by how big it actually was and I thought it would be more tacky but it was in fact clean and looked well maintained. The rides we went on were really good although the Ghost Train was definitely not worth the wait... We had a pizza/pasta buffet lunch and it was really nice and reasonably priced. The shops were nice but quite expensive. We will definitely be back to explore the rest!

“Great Day out, still getting over it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Spent the day her last week as a summer holiday treat. Obviously been before, however, this was different. Park is much nicer, well kept and clean. Value for money, three adults and one child, just over £80. Book online to get the deals. Spent from when it opened to closing time. Park was busy but still walked on the rides without much qeueing.

Rides are amazing, even 19 years old the 'Big One' still is awesome, an amazing ride which will still be smazing in another ten years time!!

Parking nearby was cheap, just couple of minutes walk. Look forward to going back.

“Great Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The rides were great and the park is much improved since the last time we visited but as always, queuing for long periods of time and watching fast track visitors jump the queue upset the kids.
